Dormy House, Broadway
Reopened last month after a multi-million pound refurbishment, this 17th-century farmhouse and family-owned hotel is now a grown-up country retreat. Interiors were overseen by the same design team as Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons, while the gardens have been landscaped by Chelsea Flower Show gold-winner Chris Beardshaw. The action revolves around The Potting Shed "dining pub"; next door, the Garden Room serves a more refined menu by Michelin-starred chef John Wood. A spa will complete the package in 2014.
